Liuzzi: Hispania has good potential

Tonio Liuzzi says he is confident that Hispania can deliver a good car for the 2011 season, as he prepares to make a bid for the team's vacant second seat in testing at Catalunya tomorrow

The second Hispania drive alongside Narain Karthikeyan is the only seat still available in the 2011 Formula 1 field, and team boss Colin Kolles has confirmed that Liuzzi's test in the squad's 2010 car tomorrow is being carried out with a view to signing the Italian.

"As I always said our target is to get the best possible package," said Kolles.

"Tonio is a strong contender for the second seat given that he has a lot of experience in Formula 1. We hope his comments and feedback will help the team to progress in the right direction."

Liuzzi is looking for a 2011 drive after losing his Force India seat to Paul di Resta following a difficult 2010 campaign.

Although Hispania was the slowest car in the field last season, Liuzzi is confident that its new F111 - which will make its debut at the final winter test - will be a big step forward over last year's machine.

"Hispania Racing is a team with potential that can grow in the future and could have a good package for the season with the new car," said Liuzzi.

"There is still a lot to do because we are starting tomorrow with the first test, but there will be a lot to come. I am sure it will be a good day and I am looking forward to the next step."
